DRESSED FOR SUCCESS Tencer
Meet Rob Tencer, a self-styled "Über Celebrity Publicist" who says Oprah's favorite life system, The Secret, can help you become the next darling socialite.

But it's not as simple as showing up at parties and looking dazzling, you should know. Social climbing takes strategy and a strict adherence to the rules of attraction. Having obsessively chronicled the meticulous manipulations of social climbers for years, Radar was fascinated by the way Tencer broke it all down to a few Secret-tinged tips on his website.

Our favorites after the jump ...

TALK THE TALK: "Lisping might show an imperfection, but it is also very unique."

WALK THE WALK: "By walking with a limp, a dragging of the foot, or even a hopping or skipping while walking, you're creating something very unique.... This will help you stand out from the crowd and be distinguishable from everyone else. This will help you become a socialite."

BE MYSTERIOUS: "Start with a neutral, emotionless face. This could be read in many ways and creates mystery. You are striving for the mystery and for people's imagination to kick in."

DATE A STAR: Tencer's e-book, Stop Waiting to be Famous and Start Dating to be Famous, is for you if "you can be classified as a social climber whore" and "will do whatever it takes for stardom."

As to whether Tencer's sage advice has led any It girls to truly make it, Tencer explains: "With clients, I put them on a pedestal, and the world can see them. If there's nothing there, they are revealed for their phoniness. As of now, there have just been a lot of phonies and fakes who just want to be noticed and have a lot of money. I could use somebody with talent. But they never have the money."
